glite-WN - Update to version 3.0.15-3

Date 02.04.07
Priority Normal


This update contains the latest version of GSIOpenSSH (3.9), which fixes the Denial of Service vulnerability (DoS vulnerability) described in the GGUS ticket 18734 ("gsissh server version out of date").

Support for scratch space for pool accounts

If you want to support scratch space for pool accounts via EDG_WL_SCRATCH you need to

  • set a valid GLITE_LOCAL_CUSTOMIZATION_DIR in your environment on the worker node and point it to a folder
  • inside this folder, you need to create a script (the name is fixed) where you put 'cd $EDG_WL_SCRATCH' inside.

Please also have a look at the list of known issues.
